Your living room is most likely one of the most-used rooms in your house. You hang out with your family in it, entertain guests in it and even take the occasional midday nap in it. So why not turn your living room into the ultimate oasis? Give your living room the attention it deserves, and gain some design inspiration from these simple living room ideas.
Mixing patterns and textures can be a huge win for your living room—just remember to stick to a simple color palette. Overwhelming your room with lots of color, along with patterns and textures, can send a confusing message, and make your room feel too busy. Our recommendation is to choose one bold color and compliment it with a variety of subtle grey, off-white or beige pieces. Take some inspiration from the below living room photos. Notice how both of these rooms choose one main color to highlight (blue), and mix in some subtle patterns and textures to create a relaxed, clean environment.
Inject personality into your living space with vibrant colors and energetic hues. The key to creating a bold living room is to choose colors that compliment each other, and work well together in the same space. Also try to steer clear of crazy patterns and textures. If you choose to use some pattern and texture, make sure it is complimentary of your chosen color scheme. In general, bright pink and green go well together, as well as blue, green and purple.
Black and White
An ultra-modern room uses color sparingly to create a clean, sleek living space. If this is the route you want to go, focus on making the majority of your living room black and white, while injecting one pop of color—like red, pink or even yellow. And since your color palette will be relatively simple, feel free to go crazy with color and texture!
